The good enough secret to success
Is your vision for what you want to create in your world being repressed by the inner tyranny of perfection? Does the need to “get it right” drag down your efforts to reach your goals?
If the answer to that is yes, this video is for you. In it, I take a look at the good enough secret to success (while taking another step in my path of perfect imperfection).
As Brene Brown said in her book, The Gifts of Imperfection, “Perfectionism hampers success. In fact, it’s often the path to depression, anxiety, addiction, and life-paralysis.”
I’m committed to moving towards my vision for the impact I feel called to make in the world with positive, productive, perfect imperfection. I’m not sure my ego will ever actually buy the story that imperfection is OK, but I’m gallumphing forward whether my ego approves or not.
I learned a couple things doing this video. First, I need to reposition the lighting in front of me so you don’t keep seeing the reflection in my glasses (or just get some dad-gummed contacts!). And second, I need to figure out how to eliminate the shadows from my wild gesticulations.
I cringe a bit when I watch this video (cringing seems to be a standard reaction as I take steps here), but I love that I’m in the game and taking action.
How about you? Is there anything you need to do to move towards your goals that would benefit from a little perfect imperfection? What would taking a good enough approach look like? What one thing can you identify that you can do “good enough” and start creating some momentum?
